Ugh, men.

There's a report on In Touch claiming Yankee man Alex Rodriguez has not only taken up with 25-year-old Elaine Spottswood, a design consultant, so soon after splitting with actress Kate Hudson... he was already seeing her while he was dating Kate!

Says an insider: "Elaine and Alex have been romantic for a few months, since before he and Kate ended their relationship. Kate is devastated and feels stupid. She thought that she and Alex were moving toward marriage. She never would have imagined he would cheat on her."

Apparently, he was also sexting Elaine while he was with Kate!

What does Elaine have to say? "It’s only recently that we’ve reconnected, about a month or so ago." Hmm...
